Oxen plowing (credit: Beth Kingston)Mumford, N.Y. (April 14, 2021) — When Genesee Country Village & Museum opens its doors on Saturday, May 8, it will mark the 45th season of connecting visitors with history, art, and nature through immersive experiences that connect life in the 1800s to today’s world. Many guests don’t realize that the 68 historic buildings that comprise the picturesque Historic Village were all painstakingly moved there from locations around Western New York, in an effort begun in 1966 by Museum founder Jack Wehle. As a history-lover and conservationist, Mr. Wehle saw an opportunity to preserve examples of local architecture while also creating a place to tell the story of New York’s history. Today, GCV&M encompasses 600 acres with the Historic Village, a Nature Center, and an art gallery, all dedicated to preserving and highlighting local history for future generations.
